Helen's Crumb Spice Cake

"This recipe won first prize in 1954" was printed with the recipe. I don't know who won the recipe contest, or where the contest was held, though I don't think it was Helen who won. But who knows?

Helen's Crumb Spice Cake

2 cups brown sugar
2 cups cake flour, sifted
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup sour milk
1 tsp. soda

Mix first ingredients as for pie crust until well blended. Remove 1/2 cup mixture and save for topping. Combine egg, milk, and baking soda to remaining crumbs. Beat until smooth. Pour into greased 8x8" pan and sprinkle crumbs over tops. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
